Hello Dare 2B Artzy friends! Michelle Houghton here with a little D2BA inspiration as you twiddle creative fingers safely at home. I have a fun new thing for you to try to! So I colored up two manatees friends and then had some fun creating my own bubbles to match.
First here is a closer look at the coloring:
I used my Copics of course and if you would like to see this portion in action I recorded it and will have it up on the D2BA YouTube channel tomorrow! I matched them up with some perfect Dare 2B Artzy papers then decided they needed bubbles. Problem! I have packed all my acrylic dots for my move to Alaska and now I am wanting them. Instead of digging through a few dozen moving boxes marked “craft supplies” you know the ones I thought I could do without for a few months I decided to make my own!
It actually is pretty easy and I did have this out of my boxes ?
I used Nuvo drops in white and created drops on parchment paper. They pop right off when they are dry and I can attach them anywhere with a small glue dot or a favorite adhesive. The best part…drumroll please,
I can turn them into any color I like, matching them to any project by coloring them with my Copics. Now on the larger drops you can see some inconsistency or streaking in the color. If I really was bothered by this you can air brush the drops and the color will be nice and even. But small things like this just don’t get to me and so I just happily colored away!
My new “acrylic dots” tucked onto my card for bubbles and I added a sentiment banner and my two manatees friends are ready to shellabrate.
Tomorrow I will have the video of the coloring portion of the card if you would like to see the process. I am showing coloring both dark to light and light to dark on the manatees so if you are curious about the difference and the process it might give you a little insight there!
Thank you for stopping by today, stay tuned for more inspiration and new monthly challenges! Remember someone wins some D2BA goodness every month!
Stay Safe and Healthy everyone and
